Tim Paris; After building up a dj reputation in ¨parisian underground circles, doing parties with Jef K, Chloé, Alexkid and Ivan Smagghe, Tim Paris teamed up with Jef K to help him develop the now infamous Crack & Speed label. Working the dancefloor but also developing his skills in the studio, Tim Paris had his first breakthrough with the remix of a rock tune called “Future Now” that had been picked up by Ralph Lawson’s 2020 Vision label and become one of the biggest underground tunes of 2004. From there Tim Paris didn’t stop but continued to release quality tracks and remixes. Now based in London, Tim Paris started in 2005 his own label, again with Jef K, 'Marketing Music' and is considered by both DJs and press as one to watch. Ashley Casselle; Ashley's DJ career began 10 years ago after fellow Hastonian John Digweed asked him to take over the alternative room of his new night Bedrock on Hastings pier. This gave him scope to experiment and entertain in his own style, blending vintage funk with phat beats, disco with dubby techno and all manner of different musical styles, he has since gone on to play all around the world. Recently Ashley has graced the decks in the world's best discotheques large and small, from San Francisco's Ruby Skye, NYC's 'Sullivan Room' to Singapore's Zouk, through a triumphant tour of Brazil's finest clubs Serena and Warung, debuted at Japan's elite nitespots such as Tokyo's cavernous Womb and Osaka's cosy yet sweaty S*aze, then onto recent energetic English dates at ultra cool Issst Shoreditch East London warehouse parties and Bristol's definitive techno/house night Loco.
